Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

After replacing the thermal fuse one my electric kenmore dryer, there is heat but clothes are not drying and is blowing out cold air

First my dryer stopped producing heat. I had the thermal fuse tested and it tested bad. I replaced it..put all the pieces back together.. The clothes are getting hot but not drying. There is a lot of air coming out of the vent but it is not warm.

SOURCE: dryer heats, tumbles clothes, blows air out exhause vent, but wont dry clothes

what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

SOURCE: Kenmore 90 series electric dryer blowing cold air only

1st check the breakers
2nd check wiring in back to see connections are secure.
3rd check element. It would be burned in two.
4th check thermal overload switch which is located underneath top of dryer. Easy to remove top. Probably 4-6 screws.

Dont see a model # or make  but here some tips

 

You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts

Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few

I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer,

If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat.

Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a..

Hi-limit fuse that need to be checked for Continuity and replaced if bad

if you dont have a ohm meter you can hook the wires together
with a small piece of wire and by pass the themostates and hi limit fuse to see if thats the problem or not

Kenmore Gas Dryer does not dry clothes.


If this is the electric version then after 15 years you probably need a new heating element, they are not difficult to install and are not terribly expensive as a DIY project.

Kenmore Elite HE# electric dryer mod # 110.82822103 - Dryer turns on, but no heat and clothes unable to dry at all. It's like fluffing them with cold air blowing on them. :(


Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)Here is a link to a video that will walk you thru the process.Here is a link to any of the parts you may need to fix it.I hope this helps you,Rick

OUR KENMORE DRYER BLOWS OUT COLD AIR


It's most likely a thermal fuse if it's a gas dryer. very easy to install. If your dryer is electric, it's either the thermal cut-off or the heating element itself. If you need help with anything, please feel free to e-mail me. good luck :)

Kenmore electric dryer heats but does not dry the


Hi, Here are the obvious parts to check: Heater, High limit, Thermal fuse or thermostats...these are all generally located in the back but some models you access them from front. the most common cause is either heater or thermal fuse, I will include a picture of the thermal fuse. If you test these parts and find they all work you may be looking at a centrifiacal switch problem.

Here is a picture of the thermal fuse check this part first:

Kenmore electric dryer (model # 110 60202990) dried a load of clothes like normal. But with the current load, it suddenly stopped heating. How can I fix this?


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Kenmore Dryer not heating


thermal fuse kit.it is blowing due to improper ventilation.their is a clog somewhere from dryer to where dryer vents outside.thermal fuse is located at top of your elemnt cage.you will replace the thermal fuse and your high limit fuse at the bottom of the elemnt cage.but have your venting checked or swept out.

Kenmore 70 Series


You probably have an open thermal fuse, the dryer will run in some cases and not heat, Just moving air across you clothes will dry them however it takes forever.

If you are electrical or mechanical replace the thermal fuse yourself if not call someone you trust, you can purchase thermal fuses on line from Sears.com just do a parts search for you specific dryer.
